Cibo is si beau and si bon!  An expert in preparing feasts, Angelo Ferrigno (ex-Maison des Cariatides), the youngest chef to receive a Michelin star in 2016, is addicted to locally sourced cuisine. Everything at Cibo is unearthed less than 200 kilometers from Dijon, from what you find on the plates… to the dining room itself (hardwood floors and raw materials inspired by Japanese and Burgundy decor in a beautiful 17th-century stone building). For around 20 guests, he sent all of the following out the day we went for lunch: charred zucchini sweetened by the addition sheep’s milk brousse cheese dotted with strawberry vinegar; rosy Yonne trout nestled into a delicate fermented turnip purée and a silky elderflower sabayon; then a beautiful veal composition of sweetbreads and chops, with a corn emulsion, an haricot-vert-nasturtium condiment, and an incredible full-bodied jus; and to finish the meal, a sheep’s milk curd mousse titillated by strawberry sorbet, and raspberry tartlet with rhubarb purée, plus a sparkling strawberry-rhubarb drink to go with it. Nourishing and delightful! // Sophie Fonfek
